Fiesta de Reyes!

As is the custom every year, the Fiesta de Reyes courtyard in Old Town will be full of fanciful, humorous, and visually stimulating décor, offered as tributes to many of San Diego’s early citizens. Many life-sized Catrina skeleton dolls in fancy dress, and some greater than life size, hold court at Fiesta de Reyes throughout the fall season.

Lively folklorico dancers, dressed in Dia de los Muertos costumes, will be performing on the Fiesta de Reyes stage throughout the celebration, starting on Saturday, October 28 – 29 and continuing November 1–2. Artistic face painters will also be on hand October 28 – 29 and November 2 to help you celebrate the event in style.

The activities start at 10 a.m. and go until 9:00 PM on Saturady and 6:00 PM on Sunday

Free parking is available throughout Old Town.
Best Place to Park is at Cal Trans parking lot on Taylor - all day on weekends and after 5 p.m. on weekdays.
